Shoei RF-1200 Beacon Helmet

Combining visibility and style, the Shoei RF 1200 Beacon Helmet is like a light out of the darkness. The pinnacle of perfection, the RF-1200 has been designed, from its inception, to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel tested shell has been optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei has not only designed the RF-1200 to be one of the most comfortable helmets on the market, but also one of the safest, meeting both DOT and SNELL M2010 safety standards.

Whether you are a track day enthusiast or cross-country cruiser, the RF-1200 will allow you to ride with confidence, freeing you to concentrate on the road and most importantly....enjoy the ride.

Slim And Light Weight Design

One of the most important features of a quality helmet is that you hardly know it’s there protecting your head. Shoei has reduced the weight of the RF-1200 by using a slimmer design and building a distinct line into the side of the helmet that also serves as an accent. As a result, the new Shoei RF-1200 is lighter than any other Snell certified helmet in the current Shoei lineup.

Shell Construction

The new slim design of the Shoei RF-1200, with its distinct accent cut line, widens the bottom of the helmet to help ease the process of putting the helmet on or taking it off. Further advancing the comfort of the AIM+ shell is the industry leading four shell sizes that the Shoei RF-1200 comes in. The impact-absorbing dual liner consists of two layers incorporating different densities, helping to effectively balance the potential impact applied to the more rigid shell.


Through advancements in the aerodynamic shape, improved interior linings and a new and improved shield system the rider will experience a very quiet and comfortable riding experience. The interior of the RF-1200 has achieved a balance of a comfortably soft fit and a firm, stable hold. The new design of the cheek pads also improves the motion of the neck, thus helping the rider to check traffic behind him/her for example.

Shield System

The new CWR-1 Pinlock shield features ribs on top and bottom of the shield to improve rigidity and eliminate bending of the shield caused by wind pressure or the opening and closing of the shield. Independent beading in the top and sides of the helmet help to keep the seal of the shield tight and eliminate any excess air. In addition to the CWR-1 shield, Shoei has developed a new base plate for the RF-1200. The Quick-Release Self-Adjusting base plate is spring-loaded and pulls the shield back onto the helmet, sealing it tightly against wind and rain. The addition of a new five-stage rotating dial allows for fine tuning of the base place for easy shield adjustments.


A large lower three position vent, three upper air vent intakes and four uniquely positioned upper exhaust outlet vents combine with the Dual Density EPS liner to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS liner.

Shoei RF-1200 Beacon Helmet 4.8 5 676 676
great helmet great helmet light weight very good vision. Best helmet i ever had been riding for 30 years. June 15, 2016
Expensive but the best gear I own I didn't want to skimp on the helmet and decided to spend more for a helmet than I do for most of my gear. I looked primarily at this Shoei RF-1200 and the Arai RX-Q. Both are very highly reviewed but after trying them both I felt that the Shoei was far more comfortable for my wide face and head than than the Arai. The overall comfort of the helmet is striking. I was worried a full face helmet would really take away from my riding comfort but as crazy as it sounds I do forget about it being on some times. The high visibility is very striking on the road. Nice wide vision. All in all I couldn't be more pleased with the RF-1200. Please spring for a nice helmet. You'll be safer and more comforatable. June 7, 2016
Best Helmet Ever This is more money then most helmets but totally worth the investment. I am totally happy with the performance, fit and weight of this. I am so glad I decided on spending the extra money. You can't beat carbon fiber material for light weight on your head. It feels great on the bike also. June 28, 2016
Nice over all. Not a quiet helmet at all. I still have to wear ear plugs. The helmet is built well and is comfortable. Flows plenty of air. I just expected more for the price. June 28, 2016
Product 100% met my expectations I have had many Shoei Helmets in the past. Sizing seems right on normal for them June 28, 2016
Buy it. You won't be Shoie. I purchased the RF-1200 a month ago and have little to no complaints. The fit is a skosh snug, but I have a lot of hair and even more cheeks, so I feel this is more of a personal problem. To counter the reviews complaining of wind noise, I've actually been surprised by the lack of noise. With the shield down at highway speeds it's very quiet, and you can really notice the aerodynamics allowing your head to easily stay in normal riding position. About the venting, at first I might have agreed with some reviews saying that the ventilation is weak, especially given the price tag of the helmet. But after riding around in the misery known as Oklahoma, my head has yet to feel hot, even with the matte black finish. I guess folks expect to feel a blast of air rushing over their head when they open the vents, and when they don't, they assume the vents are flawed. The helmet is venting, and venting well, it's just not a noticeable process. June 28, 2016
Perfect helmet Size from size chart was very accurate. Very comfortable. Your head is safe inside it. June 25, 2016
This is the best helmet I've ever owned ROI: No complaints since I got it on sale, so I'd say it's a very good ROI. STYLE: Love it! The Brigand design looks great and when I had a chance to stop in the few days I've had it, I've gotten a few compliments. COMFORT: When I initially put it on, I thought, "man, this is TIGHT!", but after riding around for a few days, the perceived snugness I felt is barely noticeable. PROTECTION & DURABILITY: Can't speak to it yet because I like to keep the rubber on the road! AIR FLOW: I must have had just bad helmets in the past, because this is the first helmet where I actually feel air moving across the top of my head. It's fantastic! It was 80F (26.6C) when I went to work today, and my face wasn't melting off when I arrived. FEATURES: I can actually use my BT headset without it feeling like the speakers are digging out new patterns into my ears thanks to the speaker cut-outs. And as far as noise goes, this is a really quiet helmet, comparatively-speaking, to the ones I've owned in the past. Now I commute with ear plugs in and music playing; I can still definitively hear cars and big rigs around me at highway+ speeds. Would definitely recommend this helmet! June 20, 2016
